2:05am
hello, everybody, welcome to winesday wednesday, november 7th. we survived. we survived what i think was the longest election -- >> in the history. >> from beginning to end in the history. it seemed like that. >> we all felt like that baby, the one that was crying, bronco
2:06am
bama and mitt romney. last night i think they called it at 11:12, they called it for barack obama. he is the president of the united states once again. he was, by the way, the most tweeted about in political event in u.s. history. now, i guess this is the first -- the other election had twitter but i don't think like that. >> twitter has so taken off. even i tweet. so, that tells you how big, don't actually do it, but you know what i mean. i'm involved in the process. i have heard about that. >> things have changed enormously in the last four years. they will only change the next four. >> the obamas tweeted a photograph after they won and said four more years and it is a hugging picture of barack obama and his wife, michelle. >> but that's an older picture. >> yeah. a lot people were tweeting at voting places, i tweeted at mine only because my voting place yesterday -- >> in new york. >> everyone said you are going to breeze in. mine was a mob scene. i mean, look at -- this is me. >> there's no line. >> no. it is a blob. it's a moving mass of blob.
2:07am
>> like a springsteen concert. >> once you fill it out, by the way, with your pen, then you have to feed it into a machine in another line. >> you were getting yelled at for doing it improperly. they had to do it face up, which meant everyone saw -- >> how you voted. >> that's why they call it winesday. [ laughter ] >> well, usually i sit home and i'm a news junkie, i'm a political junky. >> yes, you are. >> i like to watch everything and analyze. i was at our show last night. >> where we are gonna be today. >> where we are gonna be today. i thought it was weird, thought it would be ten people. almost had a packed house last night. people are so weary, they voted, let's go see a show. hopefully all of broadway is busy last night. we need diversity. >> i think people need to get their minds onto regular life. and i think a lot of the people, between the horrible storm and the election that's occupying a lot of people's thoughts, now hopefully with the exception of what's coming tonight in new york with the next storm.
2:08am
>> what concerns met most, the election showed us how unbelievably divided we are as a nation, it can get so ugly on both sides and we have to remember that no matter who you voted for, barack obama is our president. >> right. >> and he is going to need our support and prayers more than ever with all the problem there are in this world. so, try to put aside your own personal feelings and reach across whatever aisle is in front of you, because you know what ultimately, we are all in this together. >> you're right. you're right. when you watched it last night and you watched mitt romney's concession speech and an elegant man. >> i got to say in this country, it's so unique in that you watch a very rabid battle that went on for a year, forever, it seems like and then in one night, it is like -- civility reigns. by the way, i don't know if you realized -- >> no coup d'etats here. >> not only do we do this show
2:09am
but we were correspond ends -- correspond endents for another program, we were very, very busy working for "the "daily show."" watch! >> "the "daily show"" election night special, featuring jason jones, jessica williams, george stephanopoulos, jim cantore anderson cooper and his golden saxophone, hologram edward r. murrow, bob schieffer. >> all right. >> tom brokaw. >> if it ain't brokaw, you don't fix t. >> jose diaz-balart.

2:10am
that gnocchi, the squirrel. >> the squirrel. >> gotten so many of these political -- campaign -- he has called them, called the race the right way. >> there were two bowls of nuts, one for president obama, one for governor romney and he was supposed to pick the nuts and the nuts he ate were the winner. >> he ate more of the governor's nuts. [ laughter ] >> anyway, and also jimmy fallon's dog was incorrect. >> gary the girl was wrong, too. a lot of people were wrong a lot of people. just shows you how these things skew so weirdly. it ain't over. yogi barra was right. >> until the fat lady sings. >> right. talk to us about the cuddler. >> a 29-year-old woman who wanted to make extra cash, she realized that a lot of people don't have a lot of love in their life, she decide she had would call herself the professional cuddler, charge people $60 an hour for affection, crawl into her bed, fully clothed, no hanky-panky
2:11am
business, someone paid $60 and they just hug and lay there in her bed. >> that is among the weirder things i've ever heard in my life. first of all -- >> it's a double bed. >> yeah? >> doesn't matter. how sad and lonely is that somebody has to pay $60 so they will hug them. have we come to that? >> i don't know. >> ask anybody on a new york street for a hug, they will give you one. they really will. some people will give you a little goose at the same time. and steal your wallet, but that's all right. they will give you the hug you need. >> all right. okay. so yesterday, you guys, we talked about tipping. >> yeah. we got outrageous reactions. boy, settle down, people. >> there's a tipping etiquette question, i'm not sure if she was eating with herself or others, the total of that bill was $138.35. on her receipt, she wrote "thank
2:12am
you, that was great. and "sorry, single mom." see in the tip? >> sorry it was great, single mom. some people saw that and were skeptical, some people thought that and she is being honest and open. >> a single mom who had $138 at a meal for a restaurant. >> right. that is pretty steep. yeah. i agree. >> yeah. how about you go to a little less expensive restaurant and take care of the people that served you, seems to me. we don't know how legitimate this story is. we heard from a lot of you who do work in the service industry who feel like you guys, not just us, the world doesn't understand that we get paid less than minimum wage, 30% less in connecticut, at least. 30% less, because that's what tips are supposed to make up for. >> mm-hmm. >> and you know, they don't always. it's a crap shoot. so, we do feel your pain. i just have another part of me, too, that feels like i don't like to reward bad behavior. >> everybody should have pride
2:13am
